Beauty lasts

Beauty lasts
On 19 September 2015, I went to an Open House at the home of our main leader for both birding and botany. This was to mark the end of the botany season, which is always sad. We went on one last walk, around the neighbourhood, stopping to look at various plants in people's gardens, and then went back for tea and coffee and yummy snacks.

This dying flower, along with many others, was in our leader's garden. I think the flower centre still looks beautiful and the dry petals almost look slightly coppery.

Today, 29 March 2016, the sun is shining with a few clouds in the sky and a temperature of 6C so far. This coming week, temperatures are forecast for between 11C and 19C! Crazy when you think that winter only ended just over a week ago. Makes me wonder what kind of heat we might have to deal with this summer.
